Call for Tutorials

We seek to extend the SIGCOMM experience by tutorials on selected topics given by renowned scientists and practitioners in their fields. We therefore solicit proposals for full-day or half-day tutorials on topics relevant to the SIGCOMM community.

Tutorials must cover advanced topics that fit the scope of SIGCOMM and are of current interest to the SIGCOMM community. Tutorials may be lectures, interactive workshops, hands-on training, or any combination of the above. Exploring diverse ways of interacting with the audience is welcome as are cross-disciplinary topics.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format, not exceeding three (3) pages in total, and be sent to Helen Wang ( and Lili Qiu (

Proposals must include:

  • a motivation for the tutorial (why this, why now, why at SIGCOMM?)
  • an outline of the tutorial content
  • the type of tutorial (e.g., lecture vs. hands-on)
  • references to previous iterations of the tutorial (if applicable) including their date, venue, topics and number of participants and the motivation for the new proposal
  • requirements for the tutorial room (please note that our capabilities in fulfilling unusual requests are limited)
  • requirements for the attendants (e.g., must bring own laptop or other hardware, familiarity with certain technologies or topics, etc.)
  • any limitations (e.g., number of participants)
